The NJ news said that they can TEXT or EMAIL to find POLLING LOCATIONS, nothing about email voting.

November 19th???

This is crazy. Why don’t we just vote by phone as if we were voting on American Idol or Dancing with the Stars. Obama is the “celebrity” president, so it would be fitting.

Nov. 19 well after the election is over ... how will these votes matter?

In Ohio we have a similar situation. If anyone chooses to vote via absentee ballot and doesn’t return the ballot but decides to vote in person has to do it via provisional (paper) ballot. Provisional ballots will only be counted ten days after the election ... why bother.

So Barry wins New Jersey by 120% of the vote. He was going to win it anyway.

My prediction: New Jersey will supply Obama with 500 million votes and will help him eke out a win in the popular vote category. Thankfully, the Electoral College system will prevent this from being a big deal.

I got crucified when I called Christie for what he was in 2010, endorsing Mike Castle over Christine O'Donnell in DE. I feel vindicated! This liberal lard ass should run with Al Franken in 2016.

Uh, no.
Congress sets the date and the election is over on Tuesday at midnight.
NJ does not have the authority to change that.

Unless paid to do so, where do y'all imagine that people - up to their waists in flood water, floating crap, busted houses, horizontal trees, no power, no vehicle fuel, etc - will rank voting as a priority, especially dhimmis ?

Sounds like it won't matter if they vote by the 19th because the state can appoint electors without them.

what keeps some industrious IT type put up a fake , online , polling place, convincing tons of people permanently interested in “the easy way” , that they have done their part?

well it states they ask for application to vote by email. A ballot is emailed to them. they print fill out scan in and email back. They have to waive privacy to vote this way. Emails printed out and kept some days to cross reference and make sure they did not vote another way.

nov 19th has to do with if they mail in paper ballot that IS POST MARKED by Nov 5th. Last I talked to my family in NJ the Post Office was without power so no mail delivery or pick up was happening. with gas rationing so folks can’t simply drive greater distances, and Post office not operating, obviously mail in ballots will not make it by monday - but they must find an operating PO that can accept and get them in the system to be postmarked by the 5th to count.

seems reasonable for the fact some polling sites no longer exist. I did see article a few days ago NJ was gonna bring in some trucks to be polling locations where polling locations no longer exist.

it’s a mess in some nj nyc areas and they should not be denyed their ability to vote by some reasonable method.

Can they vote by twitter?

Maybe elections should be held on Facebook. The candidate that gets the most likes, wins.

You make sense. But I've been in telecommunications for almost forty years. I hired on with MCI in 1983 when MCI Mail was just getting started, and as a terminal technician, I was one of the first to use email.

Voting by email is wrong no matter the circumstances or purpose. The chain of control is broken with an email transaction. This is just one more of the Socialist "salami tactics" intended to destroy the integrity of our institutions, along with DMV voter registration and early voting.
